kerry, mobilizing a kind of diplomatic blitz against putin's actions in ukraine. but besides this war of words analysts have been telling us the u.s. and its allies have few options when it comes to pressuring putin and putin knows that. diplomatic sanctions like boycotting the upcoming g-8 summit in june, sochi, they dent putin's pride but it's symbolic. economic sanctions, the u.s. has little leverage over russia. eu sanctions might have teeth, we're told at least. but it's reluctant to go there because putin could retaliate, spike natural gas prices. finance sanctions, like freezing putin's assets in u.s. banks might work but recall last year, the u.s. act did just that, to certain russian human rights abusers but the only tangible result was a russian ban on u.s.' option. what remains what we're seeing, diplomatic pressure. kremlin, we're seeing from here, hearing kerry's criticism. fo foreign minister lav aaron regent -- lav rov were unacceptable. putin appears unaffected by any of this pressure as he stays focused on what our sources are calling his main goal, which is remin

ground. meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry is meeting again with russian counterpart sergey lavrov in rome, continuing the talks about an end game in ukraine. one of the goals yesterday in paris was to get the russian lavrov and the ukrainian foreign minister to go face to face, be face to face in the same room, but that never happened, so kerry's at it again today. the russians, of course, say the new interim government in kiev was put in place by a coup, so when lavrov was asked in paris if he'd met his ukrainian counterpart, carl, he apparently replied who's that? that's how bad it's getting. back to you. >> man, that is -- that's cold. that's the cold back in the cold war, jim, thank you very much. jim maceda in moscow. >>> when we come back, it's cramer's "mad dash" as we count down to the opening bell. one more look at futures a lot of news going on. we haven't gotten to half of it yet. we're looking at an up open, though, "squawk on the street" from the nyse straight ahead.

phrases like the kerry trade. the yen, the weaker it gets, of course, really helps a country like japan because they're an export market although the asterisk for the last couple of years especially after the horrible nuclear issues they've had recently is energy when your currency gets weak it might be good for exports but you pay a lot for energy. let's harken back to another time, the 1930s where the whole better thy neighbor scenario was born and what it basically amounted to was over simplified quickie is that everybody wants to weaken their currency, everybody wants to be king exporter, especially when they're so very few economies that rely on consumption within their borders like the u.s. so now think today in china. okay? remember, it was mid 2005, the peg to the dollar was thrown out the window. and for the most part, i've sense the chinese currency has been moving up. well, recently that isn't the case. it's moving down. with a variety of explanations. but how about the easy explanation? i'm not theying it's the case but it doesn't seem to get a lot of airtime. maybe they're

saying listen we did screw up. remarkable man. >>> u.s. secretary of state john kerry set to meet with sergey lavrov in paris, the crisis in ukraine moving into a contest of global diplomacy now, but will the east and the west find some common ground in their different end games? let's bring in nbc's jim maceda from moscow who has the latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: hey, carl. well, there's been a flurry of diplomacy as you say in the past 24 hours. the chances of avoiding war in ukraine getting a boost one believes from putin's comments yesterday that he saw no need for the use of force in ukraine and has no desire to annex the crimean peninsula. that really has allowed the military confrontation that we've been reporting on now for ten days to take a step back. and even though crimea was tense on the ground today, there was a report of russian seizing yet another anti- -- another ukrainian anti-missile post. the perception really is that ukraine is spinning now not towards war but some kind of diplomatic solution. secretary of state kerry's meeting with his russian count
